Our team of dedicated support staff start by assisting you in all stages of site selection and preparation. Our exclusive commercial real estate partnerships provide access to site options across Canada. We also also help with the fine print – from applying for licenses to negotiating the terms of your lease.

As a Franchise Partner, you will also have access to our team of engineers, architects, designers, project managers and construction specialists who will assist in each stage of your school build.

Before a site is selected, demographics and psychographic analysis of the neighborhood will be performed, along with research on commuter routes and traffic patterns.

All CEFA teachers are licenced Early Childhood Educators trained in the highest standards of child development and child safety.

Before your school opens, teachers will complete our unique CEFA Certified Teacher Training where they will learn the CEFA curriculum and philosophy and how to implement them into the classroom.

As your school gets off the ground, we will work with you to build enrolment through marketing, strategic relationship building, and community involvement.
